Why do pure solvents show a level of horizontal curve as solidification occurs, but the curve for the solution sloped downward slightly?

Thanks

  1. A solution will freeze depending on the concentration of solute (colligative properties) As the solution freezes, the concentration changes, so the temperature of solidification will slope.
